August and Emma baptised their children Hattie, Gustav, Emil, Rose and Paul in the Parish of Sankt Georgen in Berlin.

Emma was also baptised in that same parish. I believe that August originated from western Germany in what is now the area around Metz and Nancy (Moselle?) in France. I haven't found a marriage record for August & Emma yet however.

August emigrated to Chicago around 1869 and Emma and the children followed in 1871.

Please contact me if you are connected to any of these individuals!

Thanks,
Lisa Gassen Laurent-Michel
